Summary The Queenstown Crows represent over one hundred years of economic rationalisation that has seen them become the 'last team' in a town that once boasted ten clubs. They play on a unique gravel-surfaced oval, nestled in the midst of a range of barren, blighted hills. They're proud of the oval but their pride is not shared by opposition teams. The town depends heavily on its copper mine, and the shift rosters make it difficult for the men to find time for the football club, so the brunt of work around the club has fallen on the women. We follow the Crows fortunes as they strive for the club's first premiership since 1994. (Commissioned by SBSi, in English) (Documentary Series)
